“Our war continues and we will triumph” cries PA Daily, while comparing Israel to Nazis

Excerpt of an op-ed by Fathi Al-Bis in the official PA daily

Headline: “Our war continues and we will triumph


States triumph with weapons and the ability to destroy, but they do not triumph in war. Nazism, the US, and Israel are clear examples of this. The war to achieve defined goals and the war against us Palestinians has been continuing for over 100 [years] without the Zionist project achieving its goals.The states and empires that subjected peoples to their colonization were defeated after several hundred [years] without achieving their goals. We, the Palestinian people, are the last people in the world whose war is still continuing, and it will only end in victory.

The annexation and the [US President Donald] Trump – [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu plan are a battle in an ongoing war. The occupation is the root of the problem, and it is the problematic war. Our people understands this and is striving to triumph in it, and its strength will not be exhausted even if the enemy achieves part of this deal or all of it (i.e., refers to Trump’s Middle East peace plan). The Jordan Valley rally is one of the expressions of the response in this battle.

The war has many aspects, and the peoples are always attempting to answer a strategic question: What will we do when the balance of powers tilts in favor of the enemy? The choice is between submission and confrontation. In confrontation the peoples achieve small victories here and there, but these accumulate into achieving victory in the end. What is important is to choose confrontation, and our people knows to choose very well and is accumulating victories.



The Trump peace plan – US President Donald Trump announced his Israel–Palestinian peace plan "Peace to Prosperity" – commonly known as “the deal of the century” - on Jan. 28, 2020. Main points of the plan: 1- Israeli sovereignty would be applied to the Jordan Valley and all Israeli towns and cities in the West Bank. 2- Jerusalem, including all its holy sites, would remain under Israeli sovereignty with accommodations made to enable access for Palestinians. 3- The remainder of the West Bank, the Gaza Strip, and part of what is currently Israeli land in the Negev, the Galilee, and Jerusalem - creating a territory almost equal in size to the West Bank and Gaza Strip - would form the Palestinian state, with its capital in neighborhoods in East Jerusalem that are outside of Israel's security wall. 4- The Palestinian state would be demilitarized, with Israel responsible for external security and controlling all airspace. 5- All Palestinian prisoners except murderers, and those who attempted or conspired to murder would be released. 6- Palestinians in refugee camps would be absorbed into their host countries and, subject to certain limitations, into the Palestinian state. 7- Before becoming a state, the Palestinians would have to carry out extensive reform of their laws and institutions, including implementing a new governing system; granting its people due process and basic human rights and freedoms; end all incitement to and incentivizing of terror; end all glorification of terror and martyrdom; disarm Hamas; and adopt a culture promoting peace. The goal of the plan is to create a Palestinian state beside Israel, living in peace and security. The implementation would be facilitated through extensive international investment.
